NetFlix vs. RedBox

I decided to end my relationship with NetFlix today. Previously I had raved about the plan, however, like many relationships, it has run its course.

Although I find the convenience of NetFlix unbeatable, I find the selection of online streaming options to be very limited and I'm too cheap to pay more than $7.99 per month, so I could also get them sent to my house. More often than not, I find myself stopping at the local RedBox machine on the way home to pick up a movie. The selection is usually larger and the cost is less.

Plus, RedBox occasionally does promotions where they let you rent for free. Today is one of those days. If you enter Thanks2U at checkout, you get a movie for free. Not bad, RedBox, not bad!


  1. I am a redbox fan too. we stopped netflix a long time ago.

  2. I am OK with netflix. My kids love the all the shows and I am a documentary, indie flick kind of gal. I have not used Red Box though. Been to a bin once and they did not have anything that time. I will try it again though!

  3. We don't have Netflix... but I LOVE Check it out, it might already have many of the TV shows and even some movies that you'd like.
